    I think the only significance is that it sets the scene and tells us that we’re in wartime and the clubhouse has the purpose of fighting for the war effort by ordinary citizens like Annie.

    …first he’s wearing his detective tracy duds, then the officer tracy monkeysuuit, and now back to the detective duds…

    As much as we might identify this look as “detective duds,” for 1944, those are pretty unremarkable civilian clothes, such as anyone might wear to a meeting. He didn’t wear his uniform to leave the hospital, which seemed fine. He only wore it when he was walking his beat (so to speak, since the whole town is his beat). Now, he’s back to a regular suit for the meeting.

    So get it straight now, that the thing you have in the living room that makes noises like the victrola is not “a radio,” but a “radio receiver,” or “wireless receiver”; the two terms are synonymous.

    We’ve had the same process happening more recently with what might be called a microwave oven but is often just called a microwave.

    It almost certainly is a ruse, as I’ve been suspecting ever since Annie invited Tracy to this “meeting.” There was never going to be a meeting. It’s merely a trick to make Tracy miss _ Belinda_ and so far, it looks like it’s going to work.

    Holidays are exhausting. All I can say is that I don’t in any way think (so far) that Dick Tracy has “jumped the shark.” Despite the fact that this is a very unusual Dick Tracy story, it’s quite creative and I think it continues to be one of the best Tracy stories ever. That’s only my opinion, but I am quite enjoying it.

    Where is Neil Wick?



    I’ve been on vacation all week, and yesterday I was 200 miles away from my computer for a family barbecue all day, so I wasn’t able to read read the strip at all until now. I’m trying to catch up.

    (Sorry for reposting out of sequence. A typo was bugging me, then my Internet went down for a few minutes.)

    I wouldn’t advise holding your breath come Labour Day, because I’m pretty sure this story is going until at least mid- to late-September.

    I wonder what happened between the two hoods and Mr. Am. Maybe we’ll find out later.

    If the city is no longer safe for them, maybe they can escape to Thunder Island. There have a boat available to them, presumably.
